Poking my head out from the "Mad Men" season premiere haze for a few minutes (don't miss the part in the Jon Hamm interview where he says he loves you guys) to note the cancellation of "Reno 911," which, in the modern fashion of our time, was announced via a tweet by Thomas Lennon. (Ben Garant then followed that with a bridge-burning interview in which he says of Comedy Central, "I feel like I was in an abusive relationship that we were never gonna walk out of.")
Now, while I am a lover of almost all things related to "The State" (speaking of which, this week's "Michael and Michael Have Issues" was really funny), "Reno 911" was always something of a backup show for me. For reasons I can't quite explain, I always liked it when I watched it, and it was always a go-to show when I couldn't find anything else of interest, yet there was something missing for me that always made it the lowest priority on the DVR. If I had a Nielsen box, I suppose that would make me part of the reason why the show won't be coming back. But even though I didn't watch it as often as I could/should have, I'm sad to know that it won't be around anymore, because there were always at least three or four great laughs per episode.
So here's my question to you, which we can discuss between now and when Don Draper comes back on Sunday night: what shows, past or present, do you not watch all that regularly, but like knowing that they're out there for those moments when you're in the mood?
